Kanchipuram Golden Lizard Temple Story

Two of Gowtham Maharishi’s students have filled pots with water to worship the deity regularly. A lizard fell into a water-filled pot one day and the disciples (Chhela) sent it to Maharishi without realising it, which angered Gowtham Maharishi.

He cursed them to turn into lizards. Then Maharishi told them to travel to Kanchi and spend many years there as lizards.

The ceiling of the corridor that surrounds the Sanctum is decorated with sculptures of two lizards. Two of the lizards had sheets of gold and silver covering them, respectively. The sun and moon sculpture is situated behind the lizards.

Aside from this, the most famous building is Nooru Kaal Mandapam, also known as 100 Pillar Hall. One rock has been used to construct the entire architecture.
